I got a ss stainless steel lift off of ebay. The lifts on both my hondas rusted after about a year and look like crap. I paid $99.00 and i fits awsome. I think its the only stainless lift made.

If I was going to buy another, it would prolly be the Xtreme.

I like the Xtreme also the only thing I did different when I had mine on was, instead of using their black hardware which tends to surface rust on the bolts I used grade 8 gold zinc plated bolts, washers, and lock nuts from my local hardware store. It cost a little more out a pocket but matched the gold brackets better and won't rust.

I would imagine the HL are tougher. they are closer to the frame. I just wished mine would ride a little smoother.

The new gorilla lift is only 99 bucks. I have two brutes. One with a H/L and one with a gorilla. Both sit about the same. The gorilla is billet spacer so you have to compress the springs which is a pain. No rust worries with it and it stiffens yours springs. You can see the H/L lift in my photo. I just added the springs. I have now built 4 spring compressors. This last one has a six foot cheater bar on it.
